Still alive over here, so at least there’s that! I learned an important lesson about second opinions today, and am now on an increased dosage of antibiotics and what is effectively prescription-strength Aleve. With any luck I should start having some actual improvement on my dental drama. Thank for the good thoughts my way, it’s been a rough few days made better by the kind messages.
Beyond the Veil
I’m almost definitely going to end up missing it thanks to still feeling much like roadkill, but Beyond the Veil records its 150th show tonight! We’ve got a couple community guests on, and will be giving away awesome prizes. By the time this blog goes live, it’ll be pretty close to starting (7pm EST) but go check it out if you can over at http://www.twitch.tv/holosuitemedia. Otherwise, the remastered version, as usual, should be up shortly on www.beyondtsw.com.
Currency Exchange Rates for Issue 12
The day has finally arrived for us to learn the planned conversion rates for the Issue 12 currency revamp! The relevant post can be found on the forums in the General section. I’m still very excited about this revamp, as it hugely opens up the ways in which players can receive Black Bullion for upgrades. While you’ve never needed to be top geared to play the game, it’s always nice to have that goal to work towards.
I mentioned the revamp briefly in another blog post; but for those unfamiliar, it’s effectively taking currency that was previously only rewarded by Nightmare Dungeons and setting up countless other ways (PvP, Scenarios, missions, etc.) to earn it. This is a huge deal to those who may not want or be able to run dungeons, but would still like to work towards better gear.
If you missed the news about Issue 12, check out this article from Azagthor or check out the dev stream where it was announced. There’s a lot of new things planned with the intent of making sure the game is as truly “Play as you want” as possible.
One small bonus to being so miserable the last few days is I’ve shown myself I can still do short updates even when the conditions aren’t the best. I’m starting to enjoy these shorter updates more, though I’m hoping to have the energy to do a longer one soon. There’s so many topics I’d still like to talk about!
While it’s important to take care of yourself, posts like these are exactly what I hated missing by posting so infrequently. Current news (like the currency revamp numbers) isn’t so current if I wait until I can write a thousand words on the topic. Better to mention it right away, then come back to it later if I have more to say.
